NPA executes fighting cocks farm caretaker in Sorsogon

LEGAZPI CITY, Feb. 9 (PNA) -- A 47-year-old fighting cocks farm caretaker did not reach the Irosin District Hospital alive after New People's Army (NPA) members shot him outside his house in Sitio Lay-a Barangay Gate, Bulan, Sorsogon, Sunday afternoon.

A police report said Crisanto Germedia was resting in his sala at about 2:00 p.m. when the rebels arrived with Eddie Fuensalida, 61, who they forcefully tagged along to accompany them to the victim's house.

The rebels barged into Germedia's house, dragged him outside and shot him at about 50 meters from his house on his head and body.

After the shooting, the suspects walked away casually from the crime scene while the relatives of the victim rushed him to the hospital but died along the way.

Witnesses said the rebels suspected Germedia of being a police-military informer about their activities. (PNA) CTB/FGS/EMC/cbd/
